What is Children’s Liturgy of the Word?

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (also called Liturgy of the Word with Children) is a form of the Liturgy of the Word that empowers children to participate in the Mass as fully as possible. In a Children’s Liturgy of the Word, the Scripture readings of the Mass are broken open and explained by a trained liturgy leader so that the children can grow in their love and understanding of God.
